Hi, I am looking for an alternate route from Chicago, IL to Vegas and Back. Im am turning 21 next year and plan on traveling Mid-June . I want to get ot Vegas as soon as possible with maybe one night stay somewhere to sleep if driving there straight for two people is two much. The farthest we have driven is to Cincinnati from Chicago, so im not sure if we can handle it.... then were going to meet up with the rest of our friends and fam in Vegas for 4 days and road trip back but we dont really wwant to take route 66. That is the only route i can find online. After Vegas we want to go to Los Angeles for 2 days... then to the Grand Canyon.... and we want to stop in Dallas and Memphis for sure before ending up back in chicago.... need suggestions on stops, and good things to see or visit. we can take two weeks of total from work. were pretty open to anything, ill be 21 and my boyfriend is 25.... would renting be worth it, or sould we drive our car.
